I first played a Sofia several years ago and loved the sound. It's strong in the mid and bass notes, without washing out the high end. Last year I found one at GC that had a damaged machine head. After several visits to GC to play the guitar and try to make a deal (and months of patience), GC finally accepted my offer. I walked away a happy man. I figured I could find a replacement set of heads on-line and was hoping to find the exact VanGent heads that were stock on the guitar. After several days of searching, I finally reached out to Kremona USA to see if they could sell me a replacement set. Within a few minutes of my message, I received a reply from Nikolay. He was attending the NAMM show but promised to send me a new set of heads free of charge when he returned. I explained that the damage was not a factory issue and that I was willing to pay for the heads, but he sent me the heads free of charge anyway. Now my Sofia sounds great and looks like new. I couldn't be happier with the guitar or the service from Kremona. I've had some follow-up communications with Nikolay regarding string recommendations and I've also been experimenting with the setup. The factory setup was a bit high, but I've lowered it and installed some high tension D'Adarrio's and have noticed improvement on the high end. I also find the shape of the neck to be very comfortable. It has a flatter profile, which I find helpful when playing the high tension strings. This is the best guitar purchase I've made, and I now have 11 guitars, including five other classicals.

Poor materials

The wood on the back of the guitar has split in two places. It was kept under very good normal conditions but still it has a symmetrical split in the back. Very disappointed.

Sofia sings sweetly

By Marc Scordato

from Boynton Beach , FL

Comments about Kremona Sofia Classical Acoustic Guitar:

I had my heart set on a acoustic electric Takamine with cool features like an on board tuner. I pickup up the kremona Sofia and the Takamine sounded like cardboard by comparison. Yes there are high end made in Spain classical guitars that sound this good but they cost twice as much. I purchased it on the spot. The fit and finish has minor inperfections but this proves this is really a hand made instrument. The sound is sweet indeed.

An Amazing Guitar for an Amazingly Low Price!

By Shaun

from Loomis, CA

Comments about Kremona Sofia Classical Acoustic Guitar:

This guitar was by far the best guitar I played in it's price range. It was even better than guitar beyond it's price range. When I walked into the Guitar Center in Roseville, CA, I had my heart set on a Takamine. When I compared the two guitars it was obvious which instrument was the superior of the two. It far exceeded my expectations for a guitar priced around $650. It had amazing lows and sweet highs. The fret board felt amazing. The weight was perfect and it was beautifully finished. I could not believe this instrument! It was incredibly playable. I highly recommend this instrument! I was a music therapy intern at the Vet's Home in Yountville, CA and one of the home members there had a Ramirez guitar. That guitar was awesome, but she said she liked my guitar better! They were very close in quality. I honestly, think the Sophia had a better look than the Ramirez! Ramirez Guitars don't usually sell for less than $1,500 and the Sophia was half the price! Wow! The Sophia - SC plays like one of the high priced guitars! I get so many compliments when I play the Sophia. I have had my Sophia - SC for about two years and it has never let me down. It is so reliable and of high quality. Bone nut and a bone bridge! You can't beat that! The sound is crystal clear and what I want to play is not limited to the guitar at all. I have this guitar to thank for helping my performances be as successful as they have been!

A Fine Instrument

By Jeff Stanley

from San Antonio, Texas

Comments about Kremona Sofia Classical Acoustic Guitar:

I started playing guitar on a hundred buck student model that I bought from GC about a year and a half ago. It stayed in tune fine and played okay, especially after a little work on the first fret under the 6th string with the file tool on my Leatherman. (*buzzzzz* *buzzzzz*... ;D ) So suffice to say, I've been needing to upgrade. I had been looking online at a Pavan model based on Internet kudos. But when I had saved up to begin looking in earnest, I dropped by at GC where I discovered the Sophia. I was immediately sold. I'm no expert, Lord knows, but to my ears this guitar sounds outstanding. Strum an E chord and you can feel the notes vibrate through the guitar body evenly. Very impressive. The only model at GC that outshone it was an $1800 Ramierez. The reason I'm giving four stars instead of five is that the finish that isn't exactly bullet proof. It had a ding or two from being played in the showroom, and since I took it home it has more. The guitar is very light, the top seems thin, and the finish is soft -- all of which I imagine contribute to its great sound. But the trade-off is, if you play this ax a lot it's going to show it. That's a bargain I'm more than willing to settle for -- to have a guitar this affordable that sounds this great. To be honest, I am still interested in the cedar-topped Flamenco Negro -- for 1000 bucks more. But my next upgrade is going to have to compete with a darn-nice guitar -- the Sophia -- before it wins my heart. Which probably will not be for some time. I am perfectly happy inching my way toward advanced pieces on this fine instrument.

Sweet All Around

By Taubman

from New York

Comments about Kremona Sofia Classical Acoustic Guitar:

Guitars are a personal thing. Went into GC many times over the course of one year trying out various brands and price ranges of acoustic guitars. Time and time again I came back to the Sophia. No other guitar played so sweet. It seemed to be made just for me. Love the feel, sound, and look. Try one out.

Lovely Instrument

By Micah Dorsey

from Austin, TX

Comments about Kremona Sofia Classical Acoustic Guitar:

I have had this guitar for about a month now and I do adore it so. It looks absolutely beautiful hanging on my wall. Every time I look at it I want to pick it up and play because it is such a delight to play. I am no expert on classical guitars but the sound is very rich and has this really nice mid-range projection that is so ear-pleasing. Also the intonation and action are perfect. Asthetically, I think this guitar is is really beautiful. One of my favorite features are the orangeish-amber marbled tuning keys. So happy to have such a high-quality instrument at such a great price.

Great tone and looks, better than more expensive!

By Brad Rzepniewski

from Fort Worth, TX

Comments about Kremona Sofia Classical Acoustic Guitar:

I'd been shopping for a good classical guitar for some time. Picked up every classical at 2 Guitar Center locations, and even played my professor's concert quality guitar from a fine luthier. The Kremona Sofia has such a rich quality to the bass and mid-tones it definitely stood out! It also felt really good in my hands which is a litmus test for me. I would recommend this guitar to anyone!!

Great

By chester park

from SC/FL

Comments about Kremona Sofia Classical Acoustic Guitar:

Love the sound, nice and mellow from the solid wood construction. Easy to play for us who are older. Was playing a steel string acoustic and getting fustrated with touching other strings when I shouldn't, this guitar fixed that problem, which makes playing for fun and enjoyable.

Stand Up Guitar!

By Brad Rzepniewski

from Fort Worth, TX

Comments about Kremona Sofia Classical Acoustic Guitar:

To begin my story, I have a classical guitar instructor who's the best I could hope for. He let me try out a concert quality Spanish guitar, handmade and completely out of my ability to buy. He said that basically all the guitars below around $2000 were about the same. Not satisfied with that, I began to try out various classical guitars. I tried some much more expensive one's but loved the tone of the Kremona Sofia the best. The bass sounds more resonant, as well as the mid tones. The guitar also feels really great in my hand! It even came with a rebate for a piezo pickup which was super easy to mount and sounds great. Strongly recommend it!!
